Quackers amongst the hustle and bustle

By | December 7, 2013

Sometimes it seems like everything is just too busy to appreciate the beauty of our natural surroundings.

Yesterday could have been one of those days. D’s cold all week, combined with the loss of Bunny (her comforter) made for a stressful hospital visit yesterday. She was poked, prodded, injected and blood taken so it was a relief to leave the hospital behind and head towards (what would undoubtedly be) a busy town.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the two places, there was a little oasis of calm and tranquility as we pushed her buggy along the canal path.

These ducks were quite happy just bobbing around in the cold water, occasionally quacking. D was also delighted to see a swan.

As we stood on the bridge with the Christmas shoppers rushing past, it was nice to take a look back at where we’d just been:

And where we were heading:

And just soak in that little bit of calm before we headed off to some busy, busy shops.

A little #CountryKids moment for us but it was refreshing.

It’s a timeless pleasure isn’t it – just looking at the
ducks
